Profile Identification
Profile Identification For Citizens Profile Identification For Citizens

Profile authentication is the process of connecting your CY Login profile with your identity. By using your authenticated profile you can act as a real person during your transactions with the connected government electronic services.

Profile authentication for natural persons can be done in the following ways:

1. Through Electronic Banking Applications (eBanking).

For their convenience and faster service, the public is urged to complete their profile identification (natural persons only) fully electronically through the codes of the electronic systems of commercial banks (eBanking), assuming that they have access to eBanking services.

During this process the user is transferred to eBanking where she/he authorizes the bank to release to CY Login certain personal data (ID no, Tel.no, email, etc). It is pointed out that during this process no financial data is transferred. You will be able to review the data and accept their transfer before the process is complete.

If you wish to authenticate your CY Login profile through eBanking press  here .
